Thanks for your reply, as you say a smart truck, the pic. apparently dates from 1960.
I believe Rolls Royce took over Sentinel in 1956 and truck production would have ceased by 1958, ( before this pic. was taken). The factory then produced RR Diesel engines. They were of course eventually taken over by Perkins.
As far as the engines were concerned, (apart from servicing), on the five generators I mentioned in the earlier post, although most were running 24 hours a day for 12 /14 months we only replaced one pair of head gaskets and an injector pump in all that time.
That was 1963/4.
